Ambiance was much more hustle abs bustle than I would have liked. If you want a nice, quiet dinner than this isn’t really the place to go. Food portions were large which is good for the price but definitely not easy to finish in one sitting.

Bad choice.
I have been in this restaurant many years ago during a previous trip to Washington and had a nice thought of the place. Things change ....
We ordered two different pastas that were served in large plates. The pasta was swimming, sorry, drowning in sauce and the size of each plate was huge, for more than two persons. Of course, the waiter doesn’t say anything about it. First thought: huge size to justify high prices. Same comment for deserts.
The wine list was adequate but the prices are not in consonance with the quality of the food nor the standard of the service.
Besides all this, the noise level was very intense, too much for my taste.

It was so good coming back to Filomena, we have been going over the years for lunch, dinner and special occasions. The menu is smaller, but great items, however, the Qautro Fromagio Manicotti" was not on the menu - however, our waiter spoke with the Chef and he made a similar dish with raviolis and cheese, wonderful. This is a great restaurant .

Great time at Filomenas! Food was delicious. Reminded me of my Grandmother’s Italian cooking. Can’t beat the Sunday gravy and pasta and the chicken parmigiana was so tender and tasty. Will be back!

The staff at Filomena were fantastic! They accommodated last minute requests for additional people to my reservation and got us in and out with delicious food and beverage in a speedy manner so we could be on time for an event. Though we never felt rushed. Loved it!

From our first experience in 1983, we knew we’d be back again. This has turned into our number one choice for special occasions, from anniversaries to end-of-school-year celebrations. To many more….with pleasure.

Transport yourself back in time and experience what mama used to make to feed to family. Filomena's doesn't have to focus on the bells and whistles because their execution of delicious food is on point. BTW...get the cheesecake even if you think you can't eat another morsel.

I don’t live in DC or nearby but every time I’m in DC, I try to squeeze in a meal at Filomena’s. It is my favorite Italian restaurant, and maybe my favorite restaurant overall. I have been coming to Filomena for 30 years and I have never had a bad meal or a bad experience. The staff is friendly and professional. The food is delicious Italian food like my Sicilian stepmom used to make (maybe even a little better). The atmosphere is dark and a little noisy like you would expect a busy restaurant in Georgetown to be but they somehow manage to make it feel intimate. The desserts are the best. You will only have room for a bite or two but take the rest home and enjoy it the next day. We have recommended this restaurant to many people over the years and we always receive a heart “thank you” in response.

Celebrated daughter's birthday (party of four). From beginning to end top notch experience all the way around. The cannoli at the end did not disappoint nor did anything else for that matter. Highly recommend anytime, but for special occasions it's a must.
